a couple weeks ago and said i wouldn't repeal everything in obama occasion i would keep popular elements and within 24 hours his aides were saying, not exactly. i find that a little confusing. he has to figure out a way to have a consistent message that is credible and appeals to the swing voters he needs, especially white women. that's his target tonight. >> i think they pull that back -- >> karen, haven't we seen this process throughout this campaign? mr. romney says something, 24 hours later, the campaign goes out and says, he didn't mean that. he meant something else. >> here's the problem, every time romney thinks off the top of his head of something, which is probably why he was practicing zingers, he says something his campaign has to walk back. that's the greatest danger for him in his campaign. the reason they walked back that 17,000 cap comment f you looked at the statement from the campaign very carefully talked about that the president -- that governor romney, no kind of redistributive, you know, idea. i think wealthy people flipped out at the idea because he also talked abou
through the week? chuck is back with the forecast coming up next. let me tell you how i will create 12 million jobs when president obama couldn't. first, my energy independence policy means more than three million new jobs. many of them in manufacturing. my tax reform plan to lower rates for the middle class and for small business creates seven million more. and expanding trade, cracking down on china, and improving job training takes us to over 12 million new jobs. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> president obama landed in los angeles about an hour ago. he's there to raise big money from celebrity supporters. he will speak at a con skert at the nokia theater where bon jovi, stevie wonder, and katy perry perform. tonight he'll speak at a $25,000 per person fund-raising dinner. that's $25,000 a person. the obama campaign is looking to build on his record-breaking month. the campaign raised $181 million in september. >>> mitt romney wrapping up a three-day campaign swing through florida where he spoke to a crowd of 12,000 today in port st. lucie. romney talked about last
's like turning now into an urban legend. by the middle of next week, people will say barack obama can't walk down the sidewalk without stumbling. i'm stunned by -- i mean, the republicans are excited, but i'm stunned by how democrats seem to keep getting more depressed every day. i've had people that have never voted republican in their life. >> right. >> saying i may have to do it this year. >> i think there's been that. there's also been a little bit of a back-and-forth about the jobs numbers that have made the republicans look desperate. but yes, overall, i think the debate had a terrible impact for the president and one that i think is surprisingly lasting. >> yeah, why is that? >> well, because a lot of people were watching and because you're wondering why things don't work in washington. and when you see two people go head to head and you see it be so starkly clear stylistically, you kind of wonder if that is brought home. >> that the president's disconnect -- >> yeah. so there's a lot of work to be done in the next debate. i mean, a lot of work. he's going to have to get his ha
's not true as a matter of policy. but that's how the romney campaign has been running against obama. he repeated the lie to cnn just last week. there was a moment back in may when it became a scandal that a pro-mitt romney super pac had even been pitched the idea of bringing jeremiah wright back as an attack on president obama. that ad campaign was never picked up by the pro-romney super pac or the romney campaign itself. it was a scandal they had even been asked to pick up something that racially charged. but a few months later, the campaign picked up the welfare nonsense campaigning in a way that's divorced from the facts but that's loaded with enough sub text to knock you over in a still wind. and they picked up newt gingrich surrogate in his food stamps attack. no and now fox news and the pro-mitt romney drudge report just are going full bore on the jeremiah wright stuff, as o of right now. in 2008 the john mccain had a choice about whether or not they should campaign on really overtly racial appeals. things like the jeremiah wright attack. they chose not to in 2008. if the romney c
romney more. never uttering words like bayne, bush, or 47%. it's going to be a long two weeks before the next debate in new york for team obama. and of course, it all happened right here in battleground, colorado. it's a state that's been trending quickly from red to purple in recent years. will the first debate keep it from going blue again for the president and going back to red? good morning again from the university of denver. thursday, october 4th. 2012. this is "daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. a big hour ahead, including daily reaction from orrin hatch, governor martin o'malley and many more. let's get to the first read of the morning. in what may be the most substantive debate in the era of televised presidential debates. mitt romney performed as if his campaign depended on it, while a surprisingly subdued president obama allowed his challenger to dictate the terms of the debate. from the start, romney displayed confidence and demanding the presence on stage. he oned up the president on his own wedding anniversary shoutout. >> i want to wish you, sweetie, happy anniversary. >>
, those are issues he was ahead of obama until recently, and was ahead of obama with female voters until recently. the reason you're seeing that ad right now, the biggest and most troubling change in the polling in the last two weeks has been the shift in the right track/wrong track numbers and concurrently the shift of obama being given the edge over romney on those issues where the only place romney had a lead. they are, you know -- obviously don't want to talk about the issues that are toxic with female voters but must win back some of the suburban female votes on economics, deficit, stuff like that. they see that as an imperative and that's why that ad is out there. >> i don't think you say to your baby to, welcome to america. the first of the ad is so bizarre. hi, honey, welcome to our family. >> welcome to a baby -- welcome to america, baby, you're teething and have $50,000 in debt. after the break while the white house tweaks its analysis of the u.s. consulate in libya the romney ticket plans a pivot to hammer on foreign policy, something paul ryan is already focusing on. >> we're
in kentucky this week and arguably, he's going to have a harder row to hoe here going into the first presidential debate and barack obama, everyone expected he would win and romney needs to put in a good performance and in fact did very well. the argument here is that paul ryan is so great and he will hold his own, but no one should underestimate joe biden. he's going to be okay out there. >> paul: this may be something of a trap for ryan because you know, the media expectation he's going to do so well and he's a numbers guy and knows his brief and so on, but widen is a real slasher and he's going to go after, i assume, mitt romney, hammer and tong. what does ryan have to do here in this debate? >> well, he's going to have to fight back, paul. there was once a debate called a kitchen debate. this is going to be the kitchen sink debate and joe biden is going to throw one kitchen sink after another at ryan and he is going to bring up the 47%, he will bring up the war on women, he will bring up bain capital. he'll throw all of this. >> the entire msnbc agenda. >> exactly. >> will be-- b
's what this is going to come down to, and i'll tell you what, last week you saw the difference. an unfiltered mitt romney and an unfiltered barack obama. you saw inspiration, heart, preparedness from mitt romney, and you saw a president that came in unprepared, uninspiring. you know at, maybe clint eastwood was right, and i think that's what the american people saw last week. >> let me ask you about the -- we have some idea of the democrats fundraising in september. the totally, the re-election campaign as well as the democratic committee. $180 million in september. that's 1.8 million individual doneors, 567,000 first-time done ovrz. that's ab impressive number. are you going to match it? >> i don't know if we're going to match it, but it is an impressive number. >> are you close? >> i can't tell you that right now, but i will say this. i think we all understand that this race isn't going to come down because we've been very competitive, and if you roll the tape, i have been calling -- i have been saying that president obama is going to raise $1 billion for a year and a half. r
.m. example. how many times did obama miss in the debate this week to pin romney down on the specific question of okay, you want to cut taxes across the board, you want to be deficit neutral and you have a broad promise to close loopholes and deductions. let's spell ought out what the deductions are. let's specify mitt romney which ones you say you'll go after and which ones you'll protect. biden is really -- i think you're right. ryan we see in this campaign, interviews he had something new. follow-up questions. >> when we come back, we're going to talk more about this. we know there's a problem of biden bromance. i want to know whether or not paul ryan is willing to go hard in for mitt romney. i'm going to gargle during the break. or get the yard ready for cool an energy weather?n to size? the answer? a lot less. the great american fix-up is going on now... ...with new projects every week and big savings every day. so you can do what needs to be done. today. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. right now, owens corning ecotouch attik insulation is only $11.87 a roll.
, and i say escapable of doing what barack obama either couldn't or wouldn't do last week against mitt romney. >> right. professor reich, paul ryan is known for being an encyclopedia of numbers but can he effectively counter headlines like this one today, "gm to add 2,000 jobs in michigan"? if this race comes down to ohio and the auto rescue plays a major role there, that's a tough headline to counter for mr. ryan, isn't it? >> it certainly is. and what people in ohio and in the midwest generally know is the auto bailouts were critically important. ryan and romney said no to the auto bailouts and the president and the vice president said yes in the face of a lot of criticism and they have been proven right. paul ryan is an ideologue. he has a record and joe biden can pick on that record. joe biden can say to paul ryan, that $716 billion that you and romney keep on saying we are robbing from medicare, we are not robbing from medicare. we're actually extending the life of medicare. you, ryan, you use that 7$716 billion in your budget plan and yet you put it in there based upon you actual
your fear of the word "terrorism." obama, the white house, his whole foreign policy team, they're dealing with a completely bizarre scandal related to the attacks in benghazi, driven by the fact that they spent a week after they knew this was probably a terrorist attack insisting that it was all about an anti-muslim voe and had very little to do with terror. i'm not sure what their theory is. it's part of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in sout
your help. >> last week's debate will give way. their big head to head on thursday in danville, kentucky. speaking of debate prep, president obama is going to do some of his own this coming weekend preparing and perhaps retooling ahead of the next presidential debate. that is next week. back to you guys. >> vice presidential debate is another big talker. they were talking about it all over the weekend especially on the sundays show. >> what should we expect from joe biden following the state's poor performance. turn to the political debate coach that prepped george w. bush mccain and romney for the primaries brett o'donnell for that answer. >> i am sure vice president biden got a phone call from the white house saying look we didn't go after governor romney. you have to turn up the heat. debates abore about on the grou the one who controls the debate. i don't mean necessarily attacking your opponent. it didn't attack the president overnight governor romney stayed on message. whoever stayed on message will be viewed as the victor. biden has been coached to give back on message a
what led to the shooting. >>> 14 after the hour. president obama appears to be winning where it matters most a little more than five weeks before election day now. he leads mitt romney by two percentage points among likely voters nationwide. that's according to the latest "washington post"/abc news poll. the president leads his republican rival by 11 points among likely voters in swing states, that includes virginia, ohio, and florida. the president taking a break from campaigning to prepare for the first presidential debate. that will happen on wednesday in denver. mitt romney headed to denver today. the republican presidential nominee will hold a rally there this evening as he prepares for wednesday's debate. >>> vp candidate paul ryan will prepare for his debate in virginia. the republican vp candidate will hold a debate. vice president joe biden is using chris van holland to stand in for ryan. the debate is scheduled on october the 8th in kentucky. >>> the supreme court justices will rule on several key cases, including whether race should be a factor in college admissions. today's
for the obama white house waging what has been an uphill battle against unemployment. this week the labor department reported the jobless rate fell sharply in september to 7.8%. that's the same level it was when president obama took office back in january 2009. actual growth last month was modest, only 114,000 jobs created. but the labor department also revised the july and august numbers to include an additional 86,000 new jobs. let's talk about it with the former white house chief economist austin goulsby. austin, thanks very much for coming in. what does this jobs report mean to you? >> well, i think it's a good sign. you know when i was in the white house i used to say every month good or bad, you never want to make too much out of any one month's numbers because it's plus or minus 100,000 jobs is the margin of error. so there's a lot of variability. >> what does that mean? >> this is a solid report. >> when you say plus or minus margin of error of 100,000 jobs, in other words if 114,000 jobs were created last month, it really could have 214,000 or it could have been 14,000? >> or 14,
of denver, where last week's presidential debate was held, gives president obama a slight edge over mitt romney in colorado, a key swing state. 47% to 43%. paul steinhauser joins us live now. what do you make of all this? >> reporter: the new poll numbers. those are pretty much in line, john, with what we saw prior to the debate. other polls conducted in colorado, as you mentioned, a key battleground state, where the president had a slight edge, same story. this new university of denver poll. among independents, the president has a double-digit lead. when are we going to see more polls? you're going to see a bunch over the next 48 hours the next couple of days leading up to the vice presidential debate. a bunch of major organizations, including cnn, are in the field right now. in key battleground states and with national surveys, john. >> the president coming off of the heels of what many are considering a lackluster debate performance. even he was poking fun at it over the weekend at his hollywood fund-raiser. >> and everybody here, incredible professionals. they're such great friends.
to 14. let's speak electorally here. >> sure. >> you're pegging obama with 320.1 electoral votes, up nearly 11 in the last couple weeks or last week, romney at 217.9. 320 is a lot of electoral votes. that would be i think a mandate. >> so -- well i don't know if i would call ate mandate necessarily. if you have a small advantage in the popular vote and then if the swing states behave accordingly, obama's polling is stronger in the swing states it would look impressive on the map, it would be a below average margin for the incumbent. romney does have his work cut out for him. of the six we talked about before, the two biggest problems are probably ohio where he hasn't led in the poll by a long time and, in fact, his best polls put him down three or four points. the worst put him down nine or ten points. ohio is a huge problem for romney right now and wisconsin where he seemed to get a bounce often due when he named paul ryan has faded and see how single digits, a couple double-digit leads for obama in that state as well. without those two romney would have to sweep almost everything e
and they wanted. right now, the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next week. likewise, a study by mckenzie and company said 30% are anticipating dropping them from coverage. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board, and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this. and the republicans had a plan. they put a plan, a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this important, has to be done on a bipartisan basis. we have to have a president that can reach across the aisle and fashion legislation with input from both parties. >> governor romney said this has to be done with a bipartisan basis. this was a bipartisan idea, in fact, a republican idea. governor romney at the beginning of this debate wrote and said, what we did in massachusetts could be a model for the nation. and i agree that the democratic legislators in massachusetts might have given some advice to republicans in congress about how to cooperate. but t
in the key battleground commonwealth at vmi. romney team sensing a clear hoping here against president obama with all that has happened in the middle east over the past few weeks and months, especially in libya. nia, what do you think governor romney reveals tomorrow? does he reveal anything significant? >> well, my guess is he probably won't. we've seen mitt romney give several major foreign policy speeches, one last year down in south carolina. he gave another out in nevada. of course, he had the foreign policy trip. he's obviously trying to make headway around this libya issue, which, in fact, if you read a lot of the reports coming out about the administration's handling of this, he has a real case to press against this administration in terms of the shifting reasons that the libya thing actually happened. so i think he's really going to talk not only about american exceptionalism, but also talk about america being a leader in the world and make the case that obama has not led, not been a strong leader on iran, on the middle east, the arab spring. that's what he'll do. i think the questi
think it's going to play out. the obama team obviously knows they had a poor showing in last week's debate. so they've got to gain some traction here. booiden is a really good debate. i think you'll see ryan be mr. wonky. that's his role. a lot of numbers you'll hear from him. probably more zingers from biden. i think they have some ground to make up. >> you know, i don't think a lot of people necessarily realize how much debating joe biden has done throughout the course of his career. he's run for president six or seven times. i exaggerate for effect. chair of the foreign relations committee. here's a guy who's spent a great deal of time in public in a healthy exchange of ideas. >> that's right. that's right. i think we'll see that on display. if you look back at 2008, he was probably the best debater out of the field. i think he's going to bring those skills to bear. he had a real high-wire act last time in 2008 when he had to go against sarah palin. i think he came out of that debate looking like the statesman. i think ryan has to pass the commander in chief test. i'm not sure
that republicans have been pining for for weeks and you have barack obama certainly not at his best. if you view that in to toll talty the disparity between the two is big. you see on twitter, from reporters, seeing it on e-mail. people saying it was a pretty darn good night for mitt romney. >> it was a collective and calmer smooter romneyen than we see on the trail. i have been traveling with the campaign when he gets interacts with reporters. he's more rigid and today was the mitt romney that is friends that his closest associates tell us they see. the guy who is calmer, who can make a joke in the beginning, who can deliver a line and who can talk about these issues with clarity and not someone rambling, you know, parts you see him give on the stop. >> are we wrong in assessing watching the debate that romney had a strong performance. >> it's more than that. mitt romney had the night of his life. there's a level playing field in the race. i'm getting e-mails from around the country top "politico" people saying this is a new race. democrats very quiet tonight. republicans gleeful. the best e-ma
will highlight high profile surrogate this is week. >> this is a pivotal election. >> former president clinton teams up with mr. obama at a fundraiser tonight in california. two days later clinton campaigns for the president in another battleground, nevada. >> mitt is up to the task. he is prepared. >> romney's wife, ann, goes in front of cameras wednesday morning when she's a special co-host on abc's "good morning america," but the highlight of the week is the vice president presidential debate. >> i hope it's a good debate. >> it's one of the things i like about this job. >> both running mates have prepared for thr only showdown that will take place high pressures in danville, kentucky. >> i'm looking forward to it. i really am. the thing about congressman ryan is he has been straight forward up until now about everything -- all the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamental different view on a whole range of issues. >> i've been studying. i'm reading joe biden's speeches. watching joe biden tape and studying on all the various issues. >> thanks to romney's strong performanc
neighborhood still stressed? and i think the reason obama has never been able to pull away, even when romney had two pretty bad weeks, is that in the end there's this rubber band effect that they go, well, i'd almost like to give him another shot, but this is really frightening and really painful. >> well, nobody is ever going to pull away in this political system. so that's never going to happen. we always -- >> no, i disagree. i think he could have. if there was a moment to pull away, and the only thing that snaps it back is this feeling of things aren't -- >> the race was always going to be close. i don't think anybody would deny that. but let's be clear. let's look at where we've come. 800,000 jobs were being lost the first time the president read the unemployment report. i know these are just statistics for people in washington. that's real lives in america. 31 consecutive months of positive job growth. are we growing as fast as we'd like to? no. but it takes a long time to dig out of this avalanche of tremendously bad decisions that preceded the obama presidency. and let's understand t
the governor just said about his own plan? >> obama: well for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan, and now, five weeks before the election he is saying his big bold idea is never mind, and the fact is that if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it's arithmetic. now governor romney and i do share a deep interest in encouraging small business growth. so at the same time that my tax plan has already lowered taxes for 98% of families i also lowered taxes for small businesses 18 times, and what i want to do is continue the tax rates -- the tax cuts that we put into place for small businesses and families but i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. a
's for sure. >> vice-presidential debate next week and clinton and -- and romney and obama will debate next tuesday on october 16 at hofstra university in new york. the final face-off on foreign affairs is october 22 at lynn university in florida. will have live coverage of both of those debates on c-span. we will take you to denver where president obama has a campaign rally after last night's debate. the first of two rallies today. some of the original speakers before the president arrives. the crowd has gathered. the president has yet to arrive. . spec him to begin speaking around 12:05 eastern. we will follow that with your phone calls and reaction. up next, the immediate impact of last night's debates on charlie cook. he spoke this morning with republican and democratic pollsters. we will show as much of this as we can until the president arrives in denver after 12:00. >> if i could walk on water, it must be pretty thick. anyway, thank you all for coming. if i am one of the most respected, that is a low bar in this town. greg and i have been friends close to 30 years. this relationship

to be a thing with the obama people, who is this guy, can you trust him, and which mitt romney are we going to be seeing tomorrow, next week, next month, that sort of thing. >> congresswoman, i heard a commentator say earlier that he's a man that comes out of a private sector and he's used to saying whatever it takes to close the deal. well, that may work in business but will that work with voters if they feel you are not authentic, no core beliefs in anything, can they close the deal with someone that they don't believe really believes anything? >> well, this lack of core belief is certainly an issue but the worse in politics, reverend, is lack of respect. when you disrespect people and that's what we saw in that authentic moment of mitt romney when he was talking to all his rich friends, that he has content, disrespect for people, anybody who has any -- relies on government in any way, medicare, social security, veterans benefits, we're talking about active military. the disrespect that he showed is something that i think all voters ought to take with them to the voting booth. >> michelle
is that i will finally get control of the excessive costs in health care by repealing and replacing obama care with real reforms. >> romney and obama will debate again just nine days from now, october 16th. you can watch the vice presidential debate right here on cnn this week. joe biden/paul ryan go at it on thursday. the coverage begins at 7:00 eastern time. >>> the rumble in the air-conditioned auditorium lived up to the name last neat. fox news host bill o'reilly and jon stewart faced off in a debate at george washington university. some found it more entertaining than the presidential one. >> in man has offended -- this man over here has offended every single american. are you go to stand there -- are you sitting or standing? >> i read the bible. >> we are only as good as dpaish. >> i am short, but when you tell me i'm short, i don't blame the liberal weights or measures bureau or suggest my numbers are skews and i'm really 6'1" if only the lame street media would tell people. i trust i'm 5'7". >> you don't know this, but the feds pay for that licft. all right? >> if you missed it la

, the "the washington post" retrieved from the consulate grounds earlier this week were not classified, trace. >> and, james, have you reported on an internal dispute deep inside the obama administration and the intelligence community over this attack? >> yeah. we have previously reported that senior members of the president's national security team made a secret finding on september the 12th that benghazi was a terrorist attack. and, yet, it was three days later that u.n. ambassador susan rice, you will recall, went on all the sunday shows to insist that the killings were the result of a spontaneous mob. well, the next day fox news has learned high level intelligence officials has reached out to several independent security contractors and had them review these images of the mortar damage at that annex. the contractor sited the angles and fragmentation patterns to detect two more mortar teams using g.p.s. devices to score hits. armed with these outside assessments, the intel officials internally rebutted susan rice's claims and the very next day matt olson, head of the national counter terro

presidential in that group. we'll see how he does next to president obama which i think is a little bit different. >> yeah. >> that ohio poll is interesting because the cbs one we had last week had it at ten points. now we have another one showing it at nine points. if you start to look at the map, if he doesn't take iowa, if it gets away from him, it becomes difficult to put a puzzle together to win. >> by the way, there has been this narrative that there is the grand conspiracy and that the polls are skewed. this is what walter mondale said in 1984. this is what moveon.org said in 2004, that all the polls were skewed against john kerry and moveon.org said you just wait. and now you're hearing it frantically on the other side, which ironically, again, they are putting fox news in the grand conspiracy. >> what about the conference call today that we have to plan and organize? >> exactly. my point is here we've got a couple of local polls that are showing this, and more importantly, and you guys talk to the romney people all the time. i certainly talk to them all the time. i can tell you
, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debate and then it becomes fairly irrelevant. >> it is important until it is over. >> they should have a disclaimer -- this debate is for entertainment purposes only. >> chicago is saying, thank god we have biden to pick us up after last night. [laughter] >> if first impressions are the most important and if the average american really tuned in for the first time, would that suggest that the next two presidential debates are less important? what is your opinion on how much the second and third presidential debates can matter? >> i think they are still very significant. it seems like ancient history now, but reagan's first debate against mondale did not go well and he turned it around in the second debate. what everybody wanted to happen, in terms of the voters, they wanted to reelect reagan because things were going well. they breat
performance tonight? >> i think what we saw was the birth of an issue that, with five weeks to go in the campaign, is going to make its appearance, but a big appearance. they debated about this unnamed board of 15 people concerning health care. it actually has a name. it's in obama care, it's the independent payments advisory board. i predict we're going to hear a lot about that in the remaining weeks and that the american people are going to not like what they hear about it. the authority it will exercise unchecked by congress to effectively ration health care. there are arguments for it and against it. but it's going to be debated and it's going to, i suspect, i know political prophesy, i'm committing it, i think it's going to be a remaining part. >> we love it when you commit it, george, and thank you. on one point, both campaigns run, they didn't want their candidates to come in angry or contentious, particularly and they didn't seem rattled. they did seem gracious to each other and i said we would get back to this, the big winner of all, maybe, big bird. there is now a facebo

senior romney advisors this past week. one advisor said to me there are three things, three kinds of people we need to talk to, three ds he calls it, the dissatisfied, disem pointed and disenchanted with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and
